Success Story - LK-POTH
Ergonomically perfected “ideal-stop” brake with release lever
A manufacturer of motor vehicles. The parent company includes 12 vehicle brands and employs over a half million staff worldwide.
For internal transport, the automobile manufacturer uses trolleys with POTH casters and the “ideal-stop” brake. Previously, releasing a braked caster required foot movement against the brake lever from below. Practice has shown that this foot movement requires a relatively high level of physical effort to release the brake lever.
The customer requested a product that could be locked and released with the downward movement of the foot.
Our construction added an additional release lever to the “ideal-stop” brake lever, which is placed above the standard brake lever. This enhanced variant of the “ideal-stop” brake allows the braked caster to be unlocked from above with a simple movement of the foot. This helped to reduce the physical effort required to release the brake.
